Linux on a Tablet PC

I live in Santa Cruz until September. Commuting every day to Xilinx in San Jose, not so bad... fun ride... wish I had a fun car :I I'm putting off my ramblings about the FPGA OS until start the term starts up again.

I'm trying to install GNU/Linux on a Toshiba Satellite R10 Tablet PC. I've run through 4 distrobutions--Debian, SuSE, Ubuntu, Fedora--in the past few days, and the closest I've come to full functionality is with Ubuntu 5.0.4. I've had trouble with the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200bg ethernet device in Fedora Core 5. I haven't been able to get any response from the pen in any distrobution, though I've discovered wacom. If you're reading this because you're trying to do something similar, pleae share your discoveries with me.

I also can't get Windows XP to load anymore--I really have no reason to want to go back, since I'd rather go forward though.
